mauro icardi

Reports by Football Italia suggest that Chelsea may be set to offer €40 million plus Alvaro Morata to sign Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi.

Morata failed to hit his peak in his first season at Stamford Bridge and has been linked with a move to Serie A giants Juventus.

The Spaniard was spotted in Milan last week in a meeting with Juventus Sporting Director Fabio Paratici, although Gianluigi Marotta dismissed the development as just rumors.

The Blues believe that Morata could be used plus cash to secure the services of Mauro Icardi from Inter Milan. The Argentine has scored 107 goals in 18 games for Inter Milan and is just 25-years-old making him highly sought after and expensive.

His release clause reportedly stands at €110 million, indicating that a €40 million offer plus Morata will be able to secure his signature if Inter decides to opt for the player plus cash deal.
